Is it worth a drive through? I pass PNC on the way home and can see a bit of the display on the Pkwy. How long does it take? Give me a "worthiness" rank of 1-10, if it's not a 9 or 10, I probably won't do it, I'm pretty cranky by then, being out of the house for 12 hours at that point.

Good question - I'm under the assumption it's free, not sure though.

I think it's a 3 on a scale of 1-10. We've done it several years in a row, and I don't bother anymore. (But I'm local).

It could be a billion times better. We also got out of the car to do Santa, and the little displays and mazes they had for kids. It was dirty, unorganized, and it was such a shame.

The Fantasy with Lights at Storybook Land is beautiful. But it is far away if you around the PNC arts center.

It's fun for the little ones, ho hum for anyone over 12 years old, sometimes they discount the admission fees

We did it a few years ago...didn't see what the excitement was.
Tahiti, save the gas money and either take the boys for lunch or get them another game for the Wii system.

Throw the $15 in a Salvation Army pot- you'll get more of a thrill from it. The kids oooh and ahhhh, but other than that, it's not worth the 5 minutes.
